Follow me on Instagram at sharpharmade! . Saturday December 24, 2016 is Eggnog Day. "We all know that famous holiday drink, the one sold in stores only during the length of November through December. It’s eggnog! Whether we buy it in stores so the whole family can have a glass or make our own, eggnog has always been a staple drink for the Christmas season. Eggnog is historically also known as milk punch or egg milk punch when it is mixed with an alcoholic beverage. Celebrating this day is quite easy and enjoyable. All we have to do is buy or make our own eggnog, and enjoy the eggnog with our family and friends. After the children have gone to bed, we can make an alcoholic version of the beverage to share around with the adult family and friends. If you’ve never made Eggnog before, have a bash at the recipe below. Eggnog {Cooked} Ingredients: 3 1/2 cups milk 1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1 cinnamon stick generous pinch of ground clove 6 egg yolks 3/4 cup granulated sugar 1 cup rum (optional) 1 cup heavy cream 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg Directions: Over low heat combine milk, vanilla extract, cinnamon, cinnamon stick and clove in a medium saucepan. Rise the heat slowly and bring to a slow boil (it takes about 7 minutes to bring to a boil.) Once the milk mixture starts to boil take off heat and let the cinnamon stick seep for 2 minutes, remove cinnamon stick. In the bowl of a standing mixer combine egg yolks and sugar. Whisk together until pale and fluffy. With the mixer on low, pour the hot milk mixture into the egg yolks (tempering the yolks) whisk until well incorporated. Pour the mixture back into the saucepan and heat on med/med-low for about 5 minutes, continually stirring, until thickened and creamy. Do not let it boil, or the nog will curdle. Stir in the rum, heavy cream and nutmeg and refrigerate over night. When ready to serve garnish with a sprinkle of cinnamon." ^sPm - #sharpharmade Fr 'Days of the Year' . #eggnog #eggnogday #egg #fit #follow #like #celebrate #enjoy #wp #fb #twitter #tweet #buffer #tagsforlike #share #pop #blog #linkinbio #lpt #ig #insta #awesome #drink #holiday #seasonal . @instagram @sharpharmade
